rue Nationale



Rue Nationale is the Main street of Amboise.  During most of the day it is blocked from traffic and is a pedestrian street lined with shops and restaurants.  From this vantage point, one can see the chapelle St-Hubert on the grounds of the château.

  7. A pedestrian way - I am envious!
    Interesting how the boards are all on the road, leaving the sidewalk free for sitting and strolling.
